    Leu Gardens is wonderful. I've gone for special events, with and without the kids, and on date nights. They're great about creating really fun reasons to visit and their events are always on point. But if you're just going to enjoy the scenery you won't be disappointed. No matter the season, it's beautiful. They have a jazz event that's well worth making time for as well. I'd highly recommend that one.

    Beautifully kept gardens! This expansive estate gives you hours of stunning sights, smells and sounds~ a real treat for the senses! The Leu House is a gem in the center of the property with knowledgeable tour guides! Mothers Day boosts their busiest day of the year, but I will be sure to return to have a quieter day in the near future! Staff was more than attentive and welcoming.

    Very beautiful. My wife and I stopped here on a split second decision while we waited for our hotel room to be ready. Definitely worth our time. It was a very hot day and the walking made us very thirsty. We ended up rushing through some of it because of that, we did notice a drink machine tucked way behind a wall across from the gift shop on our way out. I wish there were some sort of concessions inside, or at least a less hidden drink machine.

    These gardens are larger than I originally thought. I really enjoyed how every plant was tagged with its name. The butterflies were amazing, and we took a lot of pictures. I would definitely go here again.

    Beautiful place. The color garden was my favorite part. It fountain and the florals surrounding the area, made it look so picture perfect. A great place for a wedding or bridal shower too. Fun fact: It is part of the National Registry of historical places, from what the lady in the front told me.

The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas.
